Evening photo: Camino Frances: Pilgrim’s trail in Spain

On the route known as the Camino Frances, pilgrims dot a trail across the Meseta, the plateau of central Spain. “The Camino has no specific stopping point each day,” wrote photographer Michael George in his journal. “If you are tired, injured, or fall in love with a town or a person, you can stop.” Exploring on foot, he concluded, is “simultaneously the simplest and most intense way to see the world.”

It means literally “French Way” and is a very old pilgrimage route. (Wiki here)

    A girl I knew walked the Camino. Got very bad blisters and actually drove most of the day way in a support Van. Never been sure it was worth the candle.

      It seems like a pretty long route.
